Cool, Calm and Collected

Calming as the sky on a long winter's night, this sand window offers the weary eye an ever-changing view. Multicolored sand and water are sealed in a wooden frame, with the northern lights in a midnight sky printed behind them. Rotate the glass, and enjoy the sight of the sand swirling and shifting into clouds and landscapes, glaciers and mountains of intricate lines and patterns. The included rear mounting hardware allows you to rotate the frame a full 360 degrees. Created by Klaus Bosch and handmade in Austria, this inventive artwork will bring a calming, natural presence and a sense of wonder to your office or home. Please note that the video above is of Black Window Art, available here.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Aurora Borealis Sand Art:

    Truly can't stop looking at this. At first, I thought "sand art - come on" But my husband had a little cheapy sand art he liked to look at on his desk to relax. And he broke it. So I bought him this for christmas. Can't tell you how mesmerizing it is - no one who sees it can stop watching it. So beautiful and cool.
